Hi Debbie! “Sorry it has taken me so long to touch base. So many constantly moving parts…Before I forget, Whitney won the friendly competition for the free meal and one of your online classes. We have taken so much of what you taught us and put it into action in the restaurant. The best improvement for me has been the Red Book!  Great way to communicate with each other!  (a few have trouble saying things nicely. Lol!) I’m still working with Josiah on wearing a clean apron!  He has 2 now… both dirty. Ha-ha. My struggle is the opening/closing/side work checklists. I’ve been attempting them for weeks… trying to break it down into manageable quantities of tasks. Not sure why I’ve been so stuck. Might have a bit of time today and tomorrow to tackle it again. Hope you are well… and thanks again for all you help and advice!”

Know the job and tasks upfront before going onto the floor or arriving on site. Refresh service protocol to validate your team as consummate professionals. Make it look easy. Prevent table bussing and clearing service sins. Seize the opportunity to measure the challenges faced by your own company or organization in the food service arena.

We continue to train during the challenges over the past year. We come to your property working with staff around their shifts for multiple days of classroom style training and then coaching on the floor, validating new guidelines and reinforcing new techniques specific to the property and these challenging times. Our handouts become service manual guidelines.
